Free Pattern: Clutch Handbag with Strap

I love sharing free content for you guys, but the reality is that I do it for free.

Even the smallest amounts means the world.

Thanks a lot!

Hook: 4,5 mm hook + 3 mm hook
Yarn: Cotton, 70 grams (4 balls), size 1 (fingering, superfine, suitable for 2,5-3 mm hook)
I used this yarn from Mayflower. (affiliate)
Stitches: Half double crochet (hdc), single crochet (sc), slip stitch (ss), chain (ch),
Gauge: 10 cm = 13 stitches x 10 rows
Measurements: 19 cm x 9 cm

You will use 4 strands of yarn at a time for the bag.
1 strand of yarn (and a 3 mm hook) for the straps.
and 1 strand of yarn (and 4,5 mm hook) for the edges.

Row 1: Make a chainless foundation of 30 hdc (or chain so you have that number of stitches.).Ch 1.

The 1 ch ainis a turning chain and doesn’t count as an extra stitch – instead you crochet into the first stitch from the hook = 30 stitches on the row

Row 2-18: Make 1 hdc into each stitch, ch 1 and turn over. If you want it to be longer, make more rows!

Turn the square on the side and sc together the sides 1/3 of the way (over 10 stitches).

Wrap strap:

With a 3 mm hook and 1 strand of yarn insert your hook on the middle of the bag (between the 9th and 10th row), and chain 130, make 1 ss into each chain, finish with 1 ss where you started. Switch to a 4,5 mm hook and crochet over the edge of the bag. Also crochet over the other sides of the bag.

Shoulder strap:

With a 3 mm hook and 1 strand of yarn insert hook where you connected the side and chain 170, make 1 ss in the other side of the bag and ss back into each ch, finish with 1 ss where you started off on the bag. Break off the yarn.

Sew in the loose ends and you’re done!
